Abstract

Generalized linear models (GLM) are mathematical extensions of linear models. This paper demonstrates GLM model-building procedures step-by-step for the distribution and abundance of active patterned ground in northern Finland. Both the distribution and abundance models clearly indicate an increasing activity of patterned ground with increasing soil moisture and proportion of concave topography. Activity decreases with increasing altitude. The AA. conclude that GLM techniques combined with a geographic information system can play an important role in analysing and modelling periglacial data sets
